Have a work trip to SEA and need to be in SEA 20th May-24th May, normal base is LHR. (have christening on 26th May so have to fly back on 24th - initial day can be flexible by +/- 1 day). Work policy is economy but can fly better class if cost is close/can top up. Happy to travel Ex EU to get the business class fares down - any advice / routes would be much appreciated!

TIA!

For that period (and earlier) also look at starting in Germany. FRA-BOM-FRA in J is available for 2,144 EUR on many dates.

Can also be open jaw with other Area 3 destinations -- a family member booked FRA-LHR-BOM / SIN-LHR-FRA spanning Christmas and New Year for 1,785 GBP.

Anything good knocking around to NYC for thanksgiving in J?

Iím departing from DUB but the outbounds seem very expensive. Best Iíve found so far is ex MAD and back into DUB via LHR with a positioning flight to MAD costing Ä1640 all in.

Cheers

in a nutshell at the time the premium fare deal forum was revamped, there was a big consultation on how to organise it. Some of us proposed threads or sub fora by alliance but that was rejected by others at the time so the mods are merely implementing the decision taken at the time.

I presume you mean CPT rather than CPH because Copenhagen to Glasgow for £886 is a bit pricey ;-)

Hi,
Can anyone suggest a routing that I can do searches to look for a decent price?
I am looking at a cruise that starts in Melbourne and finishes in Honolulu. We want to fly CW don't mind any One World. We originate from London but willing to start from EU.
When I search in Matrix it only shows airlines I am not familiar with. I cannot give specific dates as the cruise is not for over a year but I would like to know good routes to consider where I may find a decent price
Thanks for any help.

I wonder if you could go Stockholm to Melbourne and Honolulu to Oslo... those are two cheap return fares but could be tricky to get it patched together. But if you're not going to book now then it's difficult to say. But generally speaking, if you can book 6 months in advance, and give yourself a window between 3-6 months ahead of time, you can find a good deal.
